The Life saving straw personal water filter, the "Best Invention of 2005" (Time magazine), enables users to drink water safely from contaminated water sources. Life saving straw is ideal for homeowners during emergencies such as local flooding which can contaminate drinking water supplies. Life saving straw is also ideal for campers and hikers who may be drinking from rivers or lakes and are unsure of the water safety. Because Life saving straw is lightweight and compact, it is also great for travelers who do not want to rely on the quality of local water.
Life saving straw is the most advanced personal water filter available today. Life saving straw surpasses EPA guidelines for Escherichia coli and Cryptosporidium oocysts, rigorous standards for water filtration.
